Speaker Bio: Jackie Fast is recognised as a trailblazer within the sponsorship and known as a well established entrepreneur in the wider business community. Having sold her first business Slingshot Sponsorship in 2016 for millions less than 6 years after bootstrapping it in her bedroom with only a laptop to her name. Recognising that the shift in marketing and impact of the recession has created an opportunity for brands and rights holders to capitalise, Jackie went against convention and developed a bespoke commercialisation framework for the sponsorship industry that supported how to successfully deliver results in today’s changing landscape. 

Following the sale of Slingshot, she took a year off to publish a book on effective strategies in raising significant funding titled 'Pinpoint' which quickly became an Amazon bestseller. She now speaks and writes regularly on entrepreneurship, sponsorship, technology, and scaling high growth businesses. She has been featured in Forbes Magazine and currently act as Non-Executive Board Director of fintech disruptor The Money Platform and remains Chairman of the European Sponsorship Association Awards. In 2018 she also participated on the BBC UK Apprentice, series 13.

She is currently writing her second book Rule Breaker: Rebellious Leadership for the Future of Work which outlines the shifting business landscape driven by technological innovation and the importance for future leaders to execute differently. The book is due out on 3 March 2021 in the UK and 28 March 2021 in the US.

WDYD? - Entrepreneur Jackie Fast

WDYD? is back! I hope you’ve all enjoyed a great start to 2020.

My first guest of the decade is the wonderful Jackie Fast - businesswoman, author, keynote speaker, Apprentice 2018 candidate and above all, a very successful entrepreneur. We talk about the reality of Jackie’s journey from one-woman operation in her bedroom to the build, scale and sale of her sponsorship business, and what life has been like after the fact. 

She tells about living in a shed out the back of a pub in Tooting Broadway to working on Necker Island, to the day-to-day that met her after she sold her company Slingshot, and what happened after a spur-of-the-moment decision to apply to sit opposite Alan, Claude and Karen for a few weeks. Jackie is super honest about, well, everything - it’s utterly charming - and I was grateful to gain such genuine insight into the joys and challenges of entrepreneurship.

Each week I invite one of my speakers to talk about their life, work, passions and leisure so that you can get to know the person who is the speaker behind the mic.

Today we are going to find out about the commercial advantages of B2B sponsorship and the importance of being relentless in your quest for success.  My guest is author and entrepreneur, Jackie Fast.

Jackie sold her sponsorship agency for millions just 6 years after starting it in her bedroom with £2k, she now covets clients including Sir Richard Branson and the Rolling Stones along with FTSE 100 brands.  More recently she’s launched a global ice wine brand to create a new drinks category for the masses.  And if you are a fan of The Apprentice, we are going to ask the questions that you are dying to ask.

Bio

Jackie Fast, former Young Entrepreneur of the Year and Media Disrupter of the Year recipient is no stranger in utilising change to amplify growth.  She directs leaders on how to succeed through the power of sponsorship in the current era of disruptive media fragmentation.

Arriving from Canada in 2007 with the intent to backpack Europe, Jackie ended up staying in London and launching her career. Her first business – Slingshot Sponsorship – was started in her bedroom in 2010 with just a laptop and £2,000. A relentless 6 years later with offices worldwide, Jackie sold Slingshot for millions, having worked with notable international clients including Sir Richard Branson, the Rolling Stones, Shell, Red Bull and many more.

Jackie Fast has now launched her latest disrupter business REBEL Pi, an ice wine brand. Relatively unknown, ice wine production is the rarest and riskiest in the world. Taking an exceptional product from her hometown in Canada, Jackie is determined to turn REBEL Pi into a global drinks brand that will create a new drinking moment for audiences with a bold and discerning palate.

Jackie continues to travel the world presenting on the future of business and entrepreneurship with her best-selling business book PINPOINT. The book shows you the pitfalls to avoid to ensure how virtually anyone can succeed.

Jackie is also a Non-Executive Board Director of the European Sponsorship Association, one of the youngest Board Directors in the association’s history.

Jackie Fast is a regular keynote speaker within Europe and has spoken at global marketing conventions in Australasia, the Middle East, and throughout North America.  From sharing exciting stories on Sir Richard Branson’s Necker Island to marathons in India, Jackie has the ability to utilise real-world case studies to truly capture an audience through her enthusiasm and vision.  Interactive, energetic and exciting makes every speaking engagement a memorable experience and one that gets talked about. Due to her diverse experience, Jackie has the capability to speak on a broad range of topics – from women in business to how to sell sponsorship more effectively.  Not one to shy away from controversy, she also regularly sits and chairs panels.

Recorded: 3rd December 2018

Jackie Fast, Founder and Managing Director of strategic sales agency Slingshot Sponsorship, is the feature interview on this week's SB Weekly.

Slingshot cuts across all entertainment industries and creates - in its own words - “a strategic commercial framework that helps the world’s leading brands take their investment beyond eyeballs and awareness”.

Since its foundation in 2010 Slingshot has worked with high-profile clients including Red Bull, Nationwide and the Mayor of London and Jackie herself has won a number of accolades recognising her entrepreneurial and industry work.

In this week's episode, hear Jackie discuss:

  • Why she set up Slingshot in 2010, following the global recession
  • What it's like to be a woman in a male-dominated sports industry
  • How sports rights-holders need to be more open to creating partnerships - rather than dressing up sponsorships as partnerships
  • The secret to being a good salesperson
  • Why she struggled to find a vocation in life before working in sponsorship
  • The opportunities presented by better understanding purchase behaviour.
